What is this Standby Award Booking

Hi all,

I was searching more seriously for award space on KE and instead of just normally using the KE phone app actually went online using a computer web browser.

when I didn't get any award space, the KE website offered my standby award availability. What is this and has anyone had success using it?

Thanks!

I actually JUST saw this for my recent flights in my KE app. However, don't hold your breath for it to work. It takes your miles instantly, of course. And, considering they only release 3 biz class seats, and like my flight ICN-ATL and back was 100% full in J, I wouldn't expect any luck. Economy even was slam full for my flight.

it seems BRAND NEW and I even checked some Korean sites and didn't see much about it discussed.

It might be two now, but when I was booking a while ago - it was 3. Either way - key point stands. You gotta be ready at MIDNIGHT Korea time when the dates open up to get biz class.
